The affordable Audioengine A1-MR makes a great audio system for multi-room setups over WIFI. Read more below.
SINGAPORE – Audioengine, a Texas-based manufacturer of high-quality speakers, today announces the arrival of A1-MR Multiroom Home Music System with Wi-Fi. The new speakers are a set of compact speakers, the perfect home audio upgrade that brings high-fidelity music streaming into rooms. The A1-MR speakers offer true stereo sound and support seamless connection over Wi-Fi.
Hi-Fi your Wi-Fi
The new A1-MR features a game-changing design that pushes the limits of what compact music systems can be. The two speakers are the perfect upgrade built to bring out the best in all of your home audio and deliver high-fidelity, wireless music streaming anywhere you wish to play.
Together with Audioengine’s companion app and your home network, the A1-MR creates a new way for you to discover and interact with the music you want to hear. To top it all, users can easily stream from any Wi-Fi connected device on any streaming app to experience a fully immersive, true stereo sound in any room. It is the difference between listening to music and hearing all of it.
Maximum sound, minimal space
Purpose-built for versatility, the A1-MR compact design does little to prepare listeners for such an expansive soundstage and crystal-clear imaging. A simple, elegant design, the A1-MR takes up only inches of surface space, ensuring the only thing filling up your room is your next playlist.
Simple setup, total control
The A1-MR speakers emphasise a simple setup. Download the free Audioengine Control app and connect to your home WiFi network using an iOS or Android phone or tablet. Thereafter, use the app to browse and instantly stream high-quality music, podcasts and more from the included music players, directly from your music library or leave the app and play using Spotify Connect Premium or any other streaming service via Airplay. Besides, you can stream in-app music services, including Amazon Music, Spotify, TIDAL, Qobuz, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Napster and more, using your iOS or Android phone.
Expand your listening
The Audioengine Control app can support up to 12 zones in range of your Wi-Fi network for seamless, whole-home audio synchronisation. Add additional A1-MR Speakers to rooms around your home for multiroom sound, stereo pairing, and multi-user capabilities.
Use the app to control your music from anywhere in your home and seamlessly jump between stations, playlists and services and play different songs in different rooms, or the same song in every room. All without missing a beat.
